If you will be in Baltimore on May 6th please join us!

Do you know the cost of capturing a change in your production database systems?  Does it cost an extra $100,000 per month to capture that change – and then is the change moved to a data warehouse that’s left many users dissatisfied?  We have a solution, InfoSphere Change Data Capture.

The Fillmore Group is teaming with IBM for a *free* lunch session at Orioles Park at Camden Yards, from 11am to 1pm, where we will explain how InfoSphere Change Data Capture can do an intelligent capture on heterogeneous databases to:  1) create an audit trail detailing who did what and when, 2) replace inefficient staging of changes on your mainframe, 3) eliminate the overhead and instability of ad hoc queries, 4) remove the inefficiency of triggers and message queues, and 5) reduce mainframe costs by $1 million per year – reliably feed downstream ETL, MDM, or SOA applications.

Take Me Out to the Ball*park*

The countdown to the first day of Spring is below 20!  Spring can’t come soon enough for me, as here in Baltimore we’ve had over 80 inches of snow – our average is 18.  In preparation for Spring I am coordinating events with the local IBM teams to introduce customers to two great technologies we hope everyone will consider implementing in 2010:  InfoSphere Change Data Capture (CDC) and Optim Data Growth Solutions. 

Both events are planned for Baltimore’s beautiful Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles.  The tentative date for the CDC event is Thursday, May 6th, with a PoT scheduled two weeks later on May 20th.  I am working on getting the Optim dates on the calendar.  If you will be in the Baltimore/Washington area please try to join us – both topics should be of value to organizations looking for ways to better control their data.  CDC’s niche is in quickly moving data to where it’s most effective, while Optim Data Growth Solutions can help any organization with a packrat in the IT Department.  You know who you are.

Hope to see you there!
